In brief: Darkness

Lack of exposure to light has been associated with depression.
Also increased pain has been associated with slowly falling barometric pressure seems to be the major association. You will notice that in a storm system coming in fast you are fine. That front that takes days to come in. There is also fair weather pain from a high pressure area moving away from you. The mechanism of both is unknown.
